Without track, there would be no trains.
Our teams work night and day maintaining and renewing our 20,000 miles of track to keep the country moving.
From quiet railway lines through countryside to complex junctions in the busiest, most congested areas, track is fundamental to travel by train.
With passenger numbers growing all the time, our track is used heavily, and we carry out regular repairs and maintenance so that passengers and freight can keep moving on the railway.
The latest technology and innovations – from hi-tech machines to GPS – help our track teams to get the job done.
